Lodging here is limited and some are very pricey. Clean, modern hotel in a convenient location. Room had refrigerator and microwave. Complementary breakfast was OK- waffles, cereal, toast, fruit, etc. Much better price than a shabby hotel we stayed in in Oscoda.

We booked this months ago for just one night and for what we paid it was sort of disappointing .... not even a view of the lake! Granted it was during peak summer tourist season but I probably should have tried /looked a little bit...More
